About Our School

We, St. Jerome Regional School, have made it our mission to live fearlessly through faith. St. Jerome once said, “Search the scripture…seek and you shall find.” Inspired by our patron, we strive to instill family values while teaching superior academics and preserving traditional standards. St. Jerome Regional School teaches for life to create a community of conviction, respect and excellence. Our base is family, our mission is faith and our future rests in the courage to leave behind a legacy.

We provide competitive programs with well-rounded offerings to educate the whole person. The core curriculum is in alignment with state and national standards and is rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition.  In addition to the core curriculum, students participate in enrichment courses.

  • All students receive instruction in art and music.
